Hi. My name is Susan and I am a prolific collector and starter - but not sew good on finishing unless there is some sort of a deadline.
Sew I have joined the bandwagon to see if I can finish more than I collect or start this year. I have a "list" in a notebook for years - then I transferred them to little pieces of paper so I could rip up the piece of paper when I finished something - very satisfying - but it didn't keep me on the straight & narrow.
Sew this time I have written a list - numbered each project from 10 (most important - DO NOW) to 1 (when will I ever do that one??). Some number groups have a date - varying up to the end of the year and the ones numbered from 5 and lower are unlikely to see the light of day this year. (I think the number 1's are unlikely to ever get finished but maybe when I win Lotto and retire I will get to them (??LOL??) Never mind, its a start.
Top of my List are: 4 bags, Stitchers Keeper & a matching Needle case (Leanne Beasley), Love Is and Gifts of Grace stitcheries and my Victorian Sewing Pouch from Faeries in My Garden. I am well progressed on a few of them so that is probably OK to do by the end of January. If you like to visit my blog - there is a full list of all that I am admitting to at the moment (a total of about 58 I think - but there are heaps more - for example I have most of the Gift of the Month (from Faeries in My Garden ) for both 2009 and 2010 still untouched! (I won the 2010 ones) - and not on the list. [sigh])
OK enough confessions - must get back to the sewing while I am still on holidays.
Looking forward to seeing all the progress !!
